Vietnam head into 2022 AFF Futsal Championship with high hopes

VOV.VN - The 2022 AFF Futsal Championship officially kicked off in Thailand on April 2 with the Vietnamese team setting their sights on winning the championship.

This year's tournament features nine teams that are divided into two groups. Group A consists of host Thailand, Brunei, Malaysia, Indonesia, and Cambodia, while Group B includes Vietnam, Myanmar, Australia, and Timor Leste.

Teams will compete in a round-robin format that will see the top two teams from each group advance to the semi-finals.

Most notably, the top three teams will win tickets to the AFC Futsal Asian Cup, which is scheduled to take place in Kuwait from September 25 to October 20.

Thailand that have held 15 titles in 16 AFF Futsal Championships remain the No1 contenders for this year’s championship title.

However, the hosting team have recently rejuvenated its squad, retaining only six players that competed in the Futsal World Cup 2021. In addition, key striker Suphawut is not able to join the lineup due to injury.

This would present a chance for other teams such as Vietnam, Indonesia, and Malaysia to make a breakthrough this year.
